numbers would be low and increase over time as just was the experience in massachusetts where only 0.3% or 123 people paying premiums enrolled in the first month. as we've said, the problems with the website will cause the numbers to be lower than initially anticipated. just this morning we heard from republican senator robb portman who said the website's technological problems, coupled with the fine print in the affordable care act are leaving many americans uncovered. >> it's something that is even worse than many of us predicted because people are losing their coverage and not being able to sign up. >> reporter: the administration's target for year one remains seven million new enrollments in the federal marketplace. they're about 6,950,000 short of that, with 139 days to go. connell: that's a big gap, peter. what are lawmakers asking the administration to do? >> reporter: arthel, we heard democrats and republicans alike demanding an investigation but now those calls are growing louder and more specific especially now this morning from democratic north carolina senator kay hagen.

of a bunch of women in massachusetts and said, "no longer will these evil insurance companies be able to charge you women more." but when did you last go to the doctor? >> when did i go to the doctor? >> elizabeth is going to answer quite quickly. women go to the doctor much more often than men. maybe they're smarter or maybe they're hypochondriacs. they live longer, i don't know. you ought to be able to charge the people who use the services more, more. >> the affordable care act was a historic achievement for women's health on several fronts. women can't be denied for a gender-based preexisting condition. it covers preventative services up such as contraception and mammograms. but what gets stossel's mustache in a twist is the law brings an end to the discriminatory practice of gender rating, which allowed insurance to charge women premiums costing up to 150% more than their male counterparts. rates are calculated by risk. a healthy woman who regularly sees her doctor for preventive screenings is actually minimizing her risk. or, according to john stosel, she's a hypochondriac. take

. again, context is important. in massachusetts when they went through their health care implementation, only 0.3% of people signed up in the first month. >> and we're looking at 1.3. an improvement over massachusetts. absolutely right. >> i think people take their time to sign up. it is unacceptable that the website isn't working. we made that clear in our lunch today with dennis mcdonough. but the perspective is important on that issue as well because most people do wait until they've take an look at all of their options, until they get closer to the deadline before they sign up. it's an issue, but it's being solved. >> so let me ask you, if you can give me insight in how the meeting went, would you say the house democrats and senate democrats who were there are all in line and as optimistic as you are? was there pushback? >> the democratic party is a big tent. i think he heard people that were supportive of states in which it's gone well like connecticut, and he heard a lot of pushback today. there's no excuse for the state of the website, but he did say -- dennis mcdonough said it i

is the real problem. the real problem is that we have shown in massachusetts that this can work. that young people will sign up. that the incentives will work. the problem we have now is that, there has been so much dust thrown up. so many charges hurled against the affordable care act. that i worry that many of the people that we need off to soon up in order for the pools to work in order for most people to get the benefits that michael was talking about. will hold back. they went sign up. and i think that is frankly part of the republican strategy. you see it failed. i think the affordable care act could work if given of a chance. all this commotion is not going to make things easier. >> michael. you wrote a become about the struggles of implementing the new deal under fdr. there are similarity here aren't there? >> i think anybody who, who examines the 1930s. and the new deal has to be struck by the parallels between what happened then and what has been happening now. i think the lesson is that any time you up end this status quo as franklin roosevelt did in the 1930s. barack obama has d
californians into the program is is a very good sign. we remember that in massachusetts when they passed their health care law in 2006, only 123 people signed up in the first month and the rush came at the end. so all of these are -- these are good signs for the exchanges and for the affordable care act. >> david, i hate to quibble with a nobel prize winning economist but i think that paul has not compared the correct numbers or the ones that are most relevant to the measurement of success in california. it is true that about 22% of the population is 18 to 34 years old and 32.5% of new enrollees are in that age group. but that group represent over 40% of the uninsured. about 42% of the uninsured. california is not capturing them all but they never expected at this stage to be capturing them all. they had a more modest expectation in this first year. and that's one of the things that is present across the board in the expectations. >> i think the other thing is beyond the numbers are the human stories. the washington post had an extraordinarily poignant story. all of these people, many of

're anemic. as we look, though, at massachusetts, an example from '0 s '06. enrollment was slow there too, people procrastinating, signing up at the last minute. we fast forward to now and your home state of kentucky. it has emerged as a poster child for the south. we have more than 345,000 website visits, nearly 60,000 applications started and some 32,000 have enrolled. why is kentucky working so well? >> well, i think the governor made a decision very early on that we were going to do our own exchange, took advantage of the federal grant program to build the exchange, brought in very, very good people and made some very critical decisions early on that i think helped. one of them which the federal exchange didn't make was to allow people to browse the site and browse the plans without going through the application process. so to a certain extent we were lucky, but it was basically the commitment of the administration to make sure that it worked. when you're only dealing with one state and one set of providers and one set of insurance rules and one set of insurance companies, it's a lot
both chambers of the commerce in 2009. in 2010, scott brown of massachusetts wins the special election up there after running a campaign to kill the legislation. his victory gives the gop 41 votes in the senate which gives them the power to block any fixes or improvements in the new law. republican governors across the country refuse to build their own state exchanges putting unexpected pressure on the federal exchanges. then congressional republicans refuse to give hhs the money it needs to build the federal exchange. then there's the obstruction campaigns. they include gop darling like rush limbaugh and dick marsh ways to avoid or sign petitions rejecting their exchanges. then there's the gop icing on the cake. the shutdown and the threat to blow up the economy. strong stuff. ron reagan, i want to start with you. this has been a concerted effort. it's like when you read about lincoln coming to washington because the secession movement has begun. they didn't give this guy a honeymoon. they didn't give him nothing. they started going after him from the beginning. >> no. and they haven'
this is working. president obama last week in a speech in boston, massachusetts, talked about what was unfolding in the state of kentucky, and said that pretty much this is the model. well, let me tell you something. this is the man right here, who is making it happen in the state of kentucky. this is the man who understands the vision, and is making health care a reality for kentucky residents. i sat down with the governor of kentucky today, steve beshear. governor beshear has been a big part of obama care's success in the state. as soon as the law was passed, he saw the vision. they got to work on the infrastructure for the exchange. they're up and running and it's working. he's cut through all the negative misinformation, and all of the lies that have been out there about obama care, and clearly explained to us today why this law is good, it's working, and it's great for the country as a whole. >> congratulations. >> thank you very much. thanks for coming to kentucky. >> it's good to be here. why is it so smooth in kentucky? >> well, our folks are the real heroes here, ed. the people that wor
, the romney plan in massachusetts. this was meant, in fact, to be -- and we moved direction of state by state, because of the -- in the midst of discussing the affordable care act, we wanted to move to a state-by-state basis. so many states, as you know, 33, a third, have opted out. where -- where the exchange is working, in my state of connecticut, 13,000 people signed up. about 7,500 of the private side. about 5,000 or more than that a little bit more than that on the medicaid side. kentucky, california, washington state. the state exchanges are working, because there is a genuine interest in providing health care, again, to people -- some people who have never had it. and to make health care affordable for people. now, the -- what's happened in these other areas -- you take -- take states -- texas. florida. they are doing everything that they can to sabotage the affordable care act. and it really is pretty outrageous. you know, we all take an oath to saying we can uphold the constitution. our offices are there to provide information to our constituents, whether we like a program or don't l
program in massachusetts. when you look at christie's problems they don't originate with policy differences. he's conservative when it comes to policy. no rudy giuliani. it is his style, relationship with the president which bothers conservatives. >> bob costa, thanks very much. >> the markets are riding high on this holiday. the cycle rolls on. it's monday, veterans day, 2013. ♪ ♪ to all the veterans... no longer in uniform, but still serving... on the job and in our communities... whose dedication and commitment to excellence continues... in every mission, whatever it may be... affecting our lives every day... for your continued service, we salute you. this message of appreciation to our nations' veterans is brought to you by paralyzed veterans of america and unitedhealth group. pcentury link provides reliable yit services like multi-layered security solution to keep your information safe & secure. century link. your link with what's next. >>> wall street up and running and the markets are in positive territory after the dow closed at the new high on friday topping the pre
the website is fixed, the policy does work. look what happened in massachusetts over the last several years since that was implemented. look what's happening in states like california and kentucky, where the website is working there. people are able to get it insurance, able to get cheaper insurance due to the fact there's now a bigger pool of folks. the policy does work. the politics has been what's very difficult and one of the reasons it's so hard, change is very hard, even in our system when everything becomes a political football. this is why it's so difficult for democrats right now and having a website that doesn't work has made them even difficult working for house senate democrats and democrats over at the white house. >> mark, another look at what will fuel our monday conversation and the rest week. thanks. >> jonathan martin is telling the nfl his side of the story while his alleged tormenting fights back against the team. martin was surrounded by the reporters of the nfl special investigator looking into the bullying accusations against the dolphins and richie incognito. the nfl
, but they're better than the massachusetts numbers were in the first month. they're higher percentage of the uninsured who bought insurance. a lot of people are browsing. we know they're going to buy, much later. so those -- that's -- those are good numbers. i don't -- you know, it goes back to what the president said, and that now that we parse it, it wasn't true. and that's what's causing the trouble. if those -- if those representations hadn't been made, i don't think we would be having this controversy. but for president clinton to make it sound like, you know, it was written into the law that -- if you liked your policy you can keep it, to make it sound like the federal government made this promise, that's really not what happened. >> i also think stupidity and stubbornness are a horrible recipe. and so i don't know where else in people's lives they would fight to keep some crappy thing they have to pay monthly for when they are offered something better for the same price. >> that's not what's happening with everybody though of the. >> i a lot of people don't realize their plans
fan. >> that is correct. >> very important. thank you. >>> 46 minutes past the hour. >>> massachusetts high school football team will remain off the field for the rest of the season. the school board in lunenberg is backing the superintendent who forfeited the remaining games after a racial slur was found on the foundation after 13-year-old's home. isaac phillips is a member of that football team. his mother is white. father is black. now his family says isaac doesn't want to go back to school and they are convinced it was a member of the team who wrote that slur. >> i feel horrible for, you know, the kids that are not involved but we are a small town. things like this shouldn't happen in a small community like ours. so when it does, i think it's time for drastic measures, canceling the football season, i think that will flush whoever that it is that is responsible for this to step forward. >> yes, it. . the superintendent plans to release more information about this investigation into who may have been responsible. that's the way to handle a situation like that, right? >>> 47 minutes
in massachusetts where this happened and he is "outfront" with the latest. this story captured the country's attention just because of the bizarre, horrific nature of it. remime us what happened and what we're learning. >> it gets more horrific. if that can even happen. what we're learning, i'll tell you what happened. on october 22nd, he was in school. according to people who were there. he wasn't paying attention in class. and so miss ritzer kept him after school to make sure to try to help him. and then apparently she had to go to the bathroom. the bathroom was locked. she goes into the second floor student bathroom. he follows her in and that's when prosecutors say he killed her. that's when they believe he killed her. but they're saying tonight that he raped her and they're charging her with aggravated rape. that is a new develop many in this case. they're saying it is aggravated because they believe she suffered really almost mortal bodily, serious injuries during that rape or they charged with that that happen in the commission of another crime which is in the process of being murde
will sign up for it, just like in massachusetts. and the president's tone on this -- go ahead, i'm sorry. >> no. i was going to say whether it's rips weighing in with a plan or just weighing in in general, i just wanted to play something chris christie said on a radio show and get hogan to react to that. here's that. >> this is just an awful law that made no sense, and that's why i didn't get into a state exchange. no, i have absolutely no regrets. in fact i'm really glad that the train wreck is not mine, it's his. >> train wreck. is this christie positioning himself ahead of 2016, hogan? >> oh, he's been positioning himself for that. train wreck was a term something that harry reid used. chris christie has a few things on issues and he's trying to bolster and he's on the right side of this and i think it will help him if he decides to run in 206 sgleen but alex -- >> in my opinion it's his personality and grumpiness, something jimmy can completely understand and relate to. >> absolutely, because i'm pretty grumpy all the time usually. >> that's right. >> i want to touch on this real qui
foundation, implemented by a republican massachusetts governor, upheld by republican supreme court, and a year from now, i predict it will have helped one of the republicans at this table. >> valuable advice. no question about it. now, what if -- what if your small government-loving relatives complain about how the president is a big spender? >> well, you could use facts and remind them that as spending goes, he's not quite on the scale of previous presidents. "forbes" did show it's the lowest growth in government spending by any president since eisenhower. you can point out that ronald reagan grew the federal government by 61,000 jobs. and president bush did it as well with the department of homeland security. i think you might just want to blow their minds, ed, and say that back at the first thanksgiving, when the wamp and noag fed the pilgrims, they invented socialism, front documented immigrants and they will spend the rest of the night trying to process that. >> i think a lot of conservative relatives, though, have kind of given up on the fact, you know, that he's -- that they
